Slugging Percentage Calculator
In baseball statistics, the slugging percentage Calculator is a general measure of the power of a hitter. It is calculated as total bases divided by at bats.
Slugging Percentage (SLG) = (1 base hits + (2 x 2 base hits) + (3 x 3 base hits) + (4 x home runs)) divided by at bats.

How Slugging Calculator Works
Our calculator multiplies the singles by 1 because each count as one base. The doubles are multiplied by two since two bases are reached with a single hit. Triples are multiplied by three, and home runs are multiplied by four. All of these are added together to find the total number of bases.
The total bases number is divided by the number of at bats. This gives the slugging percentage. Base-on-balls or hit-by-pitch walks are not counted in this calculation because though those situations resulted in getting on base, they were not earned from hitting the ball.
What the Data Mean.?
A player is more likely to advance further on each hit, if his slugging percentage is higher. High slugging percentage Power hitters are known for hitting the ball far most of the time.
28 home runs.
The five necessary stats to calculate SLG are
24B = 24
15B = 30
0B = 0
HR = 28
AB = 450
His SLG is then
SLG = (24 + 2*15 + 3*0 + 4*28)/ 450
